I am newly arrivbed in Australia (Queensland) for a four week holiday. I am staying at Dad's tonight for a week. He is in the early stages of ASD and has carers to visit five days a week. He is chipper, cheerful and loving but forgets things and repeats a lot. He goes to a Day Care Centre once a week and the group does something the next day. How do I cope? How do I react and what to do to make things easier? He does remember me but forgets who the family is and forgets that I know my brother, his son as he calls it. He asks me"Do you know my son?" My hubby is in the end stage in a nursing home in England and I fear for Dad. I am quite tearful. I would appreciate any advice. Thank you.
